The spoons take about one to two hours, depending on the type of wood that I am using.  Decorative spoons take a little longer.  I am currently working on a love spoon that seems to be taking forever, only because I'm not practiced enough to just zip through it.

Not all of my projects are wood, or take a lot of skill.  I have also been doing some fun things with paper.  We cleaned out our files for the new year and I found a lot of paper that was printed on only one side.  I usually use this kind of paper for origami practice.

Here's a project that was done with this kind of paper.  Some of it has lines and some doesn't.  There are no fasteners of any kind.  The journals are held together by the folds.  Not real practical, but they were fun to make.

What lovely spoons!  and, practical as well!  Do they have to have any type of finish or do you have to be careful not to let them sit in dishwater, etc?

Thanks for the crate link!  What a good idea!  I have a lot of milk crates left from college that are just ugly!

I don't put any kind of finish on them.  And I don't put them through the dishwasher or even put them in dish water.  I usually wash mine in hot water with a scrubby, and rinse immediately. 

And if you stir anything with tomatoes in it, the spoons have a tendency to turn orange. Roll Eyes

So far behind.... Only 63 pages to go though. I've had a look at all the pics. Nice work everyone.

I've lost track of how many items I've made. I got really busy with markets but, I have pictures on my phone so hopefully I'll be able to transfer them to the computer & upload them at some point  Undecided This is where an app would be really handy so I can upload pics straight from my phone as I was taking them.

So many pages to catch up on and projects to take photos of and post pics. But here are my most recently finished ones that I just had to take pics of!

First up, the 2.5 year 1up blanket!

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422343.0#axzz2PZU1A7dE My post on it with a bit more on the story.

And some Easter egg dye dyed yarn!

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=326.0#axzz2PZU1A7dE My post on the yarn.

misskohaku- I LOVE that mario mushroom blanket!  I have seen a couple neat pixel mario blankets-I have even tried to make one.  But when it comes to granny squares-my mind just wont coporate.  Like i have adhd and I just cant focus at all.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Kookaloo - I didn't think this one was that bad (Jalie 2911 I think is the number) but you definitely have to know something about sewing to be able to put it together with no words.  I would be a little hesitant to use it for something super complicated like jeans, but I would consider myself a still pretty beginner sewer and it wasn't that bad.

I wonder if someone like me who prefers to ignore the words on most patterns and only use the pictures would like it?  Huh

Love the mario blanket mushroom!  It amazes me when they are done with granny squares, too!  All those ends and planning!

RLB--I am much better at looking at the pictures for sewing but for knitting and crochet, my mind goes crazy reading charts!

I have just recently learned how to read crochet patterns, so I bought myself a little clearance book on variations of the granny square. I think that 1up blanket it just too cool!

RLB - Quite possibly!  I'm a a chemist by training, so I am pretty much hard wired to want concrete instructions that lay things out very specifically.  Luckily in sewing if I screw it up there's no chance of it exploding  Wink, but I still enjoy having words to refer to if I want.
